Discover Bamberg (UNESCO World Heritage Site) on a highly interesting city tour by bike and explore the region with beautiful destinations such as the diverse Regnitz Valley, Seehof Castle and Coburg with its famous fortress. You cycle on cycle paths and small country roads through the partly hilly Bamberg countryside. In the midst of the variety of Upper Franconian breweries, gourmets, but also fans of delicious snacks, get their money's worth, because the area is rich in carp ponds and wild animals. You spend the night in Bamberg on the banks of the Regnitz, a few steps from the old town, in the Welcome 4-star Superior Hotel Residenzschloss. The hotel, built in 1787, offers a special ambience between baroque and modern. 184 elegantly furnished rooms invite you to relax for 6 days. Let yourself be spoiled by culinary delights in one of the two restaurants and treat yourself to coffee and cake on the sun terrace. Round off your day in the lounge with a cool drink or enjoy rest and relaxation in the "Residenz Spa" wellness area.

After your arrival, Bamberg's old town (UNESCO World Heritage Site) invites you to take a first tour. Your hotel is in a quiet location on the Regnitz in the city center (good parking, train station 2,1 km, rental bikes at the hotel).

Look forward to a very interesting city tour by bike. An experienced city guide will show you the beauties of the city on a bicycle on a 12 km long route. Except for Domberg and Michelsberg, where you have to push your bike briefly, the bike route is flat and comfortable, mostly on asphalt, in the old town partly on cobblestones. Discover the Old Town Hall, the traditional Schlenkerla restaurant, Little Venice, St. Michael's Monastery, the Old Court, the cathedral, the rose garden, the New Residence, the Concordia moated castle, the historic lock 100, the old town, the university, the gardener's town, the Hainpark and the theater. In 3 hours you will not only learn a lot about the history and sights but also about the country and its people.

Look forward to a varied bike tour along the Regnitz and start right in front of the hotel door! The Regnitztal cycle path takes you idyllically out of Bamberg. You cycle through the wide Regnitz valley with its riparian forests, historic water wheels, through fertile fruit and vegetable land, where freshly caught fish and the best Franconian beer culture are at home. You always take turns following the idyllic little river and sometimes the cycle path along it Main-Danube Canal. Discover the Slavenkirche in Seußling, the oldest single malt whiskey distillery in Germany in Neuses and the beautiful half-timbered old town of Forchheim with picturesque houses from the Gothic and Baroque periods. Experience Erlangen, the smallest city in Bavaria, stroll through the beautiful castle gardens and through the winding, narrow streets of the old town, which exudes French flair. In the afternoon you can easily take the train from Forchheim (35 km) or Erlangen (51 km) back to beautiful Bamberg.

This circular tour combines leisurely cycling through a charming landscape with the enjoyment of the special variety of beer and the beer tradition of Upper Franconia. Discover Seehof Castle just outside Bamberg, which was built as a summer residence for the prince-bishops according to plans by Antonio Petrini (from 1686). Marvel at the White Hall with its impressive ceiling paintings, the sandstone sculptures of the Rococo garden and the babbling cascades of the water features. You then cycle along the sculpture path into the “Franconian Tuscany” and around midday you reach the small community of Geisfeld with its pretty half-timbered buildings and several private breweries. From here, your bike tour is peppered with breweries, beer cellars and tempting beer gardens. You then cycle along the Strullendorf MainDanube Canal back to Bamberg.

Today you are spoiled for choice. You either take the train to Coburg, visit the old town, which is well worth seeing, with the impressive market square and Ehrenburg Castle. It is also worth paying a visit to the famous castle complex (Veste). The Coburg Castle towers over the city and is rightly called the 'Franconian Crown'. You then cycle through the hilly Coburg countryside to the Baroque Tambach Castle and on to Seßlach with the unique old town, which is still completely surrounded by a city wall and has often been referred to as Filmbackdrop was used. We then continue on flat paths along the Rodach and the Itz to the Main and so back to Bamberg.

Unfortunately, the time passed too quickly, because Bamberg and its beautiful surrounding area really have a lot to offer! Book an extension or just come back...
